system? >> i think that is an important question, especially for our economy. i want to point out one thing. she posed for sequestration and now says it will not happen. can you imagine that kind of leadership? she goes for the fiscal cliff and now she says it will not happen. let's talk about education. this is the problem i see. we have a department of education in washington. they have 3500 employees that make over $100,000 a year. they are dictating to the school district how to do their jobs. i think that is a shame and it is wrong. i am not talking about closing down the department of education. i have never said that and never will. can we reduce the size of that department of education and get that money down to the school district? i believe the best education for children in nevada comes between parents, teachers, and principles. -- principals. those are who should be making the decisions. >> if i could quickly comment. my opponent mentioned my vote on sequestration. just a few questions ago, he said he voted to end medicare by turning it over to private insurance companies

. the debate is on domestic policy. 90 minutes is supposed to be devoted to the economy specifically with governing and health care. but we'll see if the general nature of those areas allows libya to come up, which we know the romney folks want to do. debates are as much about style as substance and this is a reality show where obama and romney will meet in the first time in nearly five years before their biggest audience of the campaign. the first 2008 presidential debate between the president and john mccain got seven times the audience of the highest rated 2012 republican primary debate. think about that. seven times. past debates show romney and obama have to worry about cut away shots that are less than flattering. in the past both candidates have come across as irritable, patronizing or disengaged. this was chris christie's advice to the candidates yesterday. >> what you do is go out and be yourself. and people either like it or don't. if they don't, they are going to vote for somebody else. not a tragedy. no one dies. >> finally speaking of debates, there was a barn burner las
some polls suggest doesn't make any sense. the economy is on the verge of another recession according to a lot of nonpartisan think tanks. people are out of work and the unemployment rate is skyrocketing. the idea the democrats turn out with the same numbers and the same level of enthusiasm as they did in 2008 has raised, rightfully so, the number of democrats sampled in the polls. >> perry, what are hearing about the internal polls? >> the romney campaign keeps putting out memos say the race is closer than the polls show. if it showed they were winning by a lot, they would say that. the romney campaign privately does not they think the polls awrong. they say the poll show obama leading by more than think he is. it's not they're saying the polls are wrong. when every national poll -- i don't think we can say -- when fox news' poll shows obama ahead in a bunch of swing states recently, i don't think we can say the polls are wrong and biased because fox news conservative leading. they show what the polls are showing as well. the president has a strong lead. pollsters have a strong incen
's entrepreneurial economy. the president is bowing to the demands of big labor. >> of all things he's bringing up card check, this red meat for the organization. to your point they're no dummy, but these people don't have to read. we live in a different world than even four years ago, cable news is a strong presence, 24 hour cycle, twitter a stronger presence around. his game plan seems to be behind the curve of what is now modern politics, anne. >> it's funny, i'm old enough to remember a time when candidates went into different places and talk about different issues thinking people wouldn't hear them in different parts of the country. i think he's trying to -- when he's talking about card check, that is a dog whistle to certain members of the republican party. a lot of average voters don't know what that is. it's a union issue. for people who care about the unions and care about the public sector unions we've talked so much about, that's a message he's sending specifically to them. he's trying to walk and chew gum at the same time clearly. whether the people on the conservative end are mollifie
in for matt. the jobs report, all about the economy for this election, one of two remaining before election day. both campaign and voters will be keeping a close eye on what it means for the economy. >> big part of the politics right now, and you can betemit romney will be quick to pounce if it shows the same sluggish job growth we've seen in recent months. coming up, we'll talk to cnbc's jim cramer about what we can expect. >>> also, remember that impatient driver we showed you on thursday caught on camera using the sidewalk to get around a crowded school bus. guess what? she got busted. now her mom is coming to her daughter's defense with an explanation you might find a little hard to believe. we will hear from her coming up. >>> all right. you remember this guy, the prankster who posed as a delivery guy, accidentally dropping boxes of the much-anticipated new iphone in front of all those people waiting to get into the apple store. >> oh, no. >> there it goes. we'll meet him this morning and has quite the catalog of pranks, quite the repertoire. we want to start this morning with politics
. there are questions about how we got here. >> it is a confusing report. the economy added 114,000 jobs in september which is actually less than the previous month, but the unemployment rate dropped from 8.1 to 7.8%, so coming up, we're going to talk about all of this, the impact on the presidential race with chuck todd and catch up with jim cramer from cnbc. and get into a new statement from mitt romney that he was completely wrong when he called 47% victims. a change from what he said. >> took a long time to distance himself from the remarks. >>> we will switch gears, ask you if you remember the impatient driver caught on camera using the sidewalk to get around a crowded school bus. guess what, she got busted. her mom is coming to her daughter's defense with an explanation you may find hard to believe. we're going to hear from her coming up. >>> and remember, this guy is a prankster that posed as a delivery guy, accidentally dropping boxes of the new iphone in front of those people waiting in line for the new iphone. we will talk to the prankster later this morning. >>> we start with breaking news
think we should build the economy from the middle class out like the president does or the top down like mitt romney does? >> credit ben labolt, thanks for joining us today. >> thanks. >> we say good morning to our tuesday political power panel. leah henderson, ted devine, senior strategist for al gore and john kerry. eugene robinson wrote in "the washington post" the challenges facing mitt romney in this debate, but going specifically saying romney's task is more difficult. for the umpteenth time he has to introduce himself to the american people and erase all the impressions of the mitt romney we met earlier and reveal a coherent person, one voters can imagine as a leader. is this debate more romney against himself? critics paint him displaying this flaccid leadership. >> he has to present himself as a president who would represent all americans. he said that several times. he's practicing that debate line. here again, even when he engages with that comment, it reminds people of that 47% remark. you see him over the last couple of days. i think it was today there is an interview in the
obama's stewardship of the economy, and very quickly it became about his own economic ideology and it became a choice between paul ryan and mitt romney and president obama and vice president biden's very different visions of our economic future. and so we're going to see that teased out again in the debate. i mean, those poll numbers are pretty locked in six weeks out. >> governor ed endell and alicia menendez, thank you for your time tonight. >> thank you. >> thanks, rev. >>> still ahead, eric cantor and the tea party were going to change washington. now they're hiding from their records. but we won't let them. that's next. [ male announcer ] how do you measure happiness? by the armful? by the barrelful? the carful? how about...by the bowlful? campbell's soups give you nutrition, energy, and can help you keep a healthy weight. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. >>> still ahead, eric cantor and the gang just love pushing that right wing agenda of theirs. but voters, yeah, let's just say they didn't find it as charming. now the gop's running from their record. vo: tough
